When to Inspect Your Tires

Most experts recommend checking your tires just once a month, or right before any major road trips in Beatrice. This routine takes minimal time out of your routine, but it can pay off in the long run. That’s because you can take note of what looks normal on your vehicle, so you can spot any abnormalities. So if you notice a small puncture, you can get it fixed at the service center before it becomes a major issue – saving you time and money along the way.

How to Properly Inspect Tires

  1. Air Pressure: Did you know that your tires can lose up to 1 PSI per month? An inexpensive pressure gauge will read your air pressure in seconds. Double check your tire pressure with the manufacturer-recommended guidelines found in your owner’s manual or on the sticker of the driver’s side door.
  2. Tread Wear: You can check your tread level with a tread depth gauge, built-in tread wear indicators, or even a penny! Be sure that you have sufficient tread depth to maintain your safety, or consider stopping by the tire center for a replacement set.
  3. Damage: Check over the surface of your tires to make sure everything looks good. Any perforations, cuts, deformations, or other oddities are worth a trip to the service center. Your technician can tell you what step need to be taken to bring your car back up to speed in Hickman.
